Ys VIII Lacrimosa Of Dana Nintendo Switch Confirmed To Run At 30 FPS


Following its PS4, PS Vita and PC launches, Ys VIII Lacrimosa Of Dana is set to make its debut on Nintendo Switch soon. Sadly, it seems like portability came with a cost, as the game will not run at 60 FPS as many hoped.

During a recent livestream showcasing the Nintendo Switch release, NISA confirmed that Ys VIII Lacrimosa Of Dana will only run at 30 FPS in both docked and handheld mode, which is definitely disappointing for an action role-playing game such as the Falcom developed title.

With the PC version still suffering from a variety of issues and the Nintendo Switch version running at 30 FPS, it seems like playing Ys VIII Lacrimosa Of Dana on PS4 will still be the way to go. No matter the version, however, the Falcom action role-playing game is one of the best entries in the series and one of the best action role-playing games ever released.

It took years for Falcom to develop the perfect entry in the series, and with Ys VIII: Lacrimosa Of Dana, they finally managed to do so by refining the renewed story focus and gameplay mechanics introduced in Ys Seven without taking away what makes the series so enjoyable. With a well-executed, albeit not really original story, charming cast, fast paced battle system, engaging boss battles, tight challenge level and plenty of side-content, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa Of Dana is without a doubt the best entry in the series and one of the best action role-playing games released this year.

Ys VIII Lacrimosa of Dana is now out on PC, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. It will release this Summer on Nintendo Switch.
